MAY 10, 2020
Dear Patient of FOWH,

Effective May 18, 2020 we are resuming normal office hours Monday to Friday and we are also resuming well-woman exams and pap smears.

All existing restrictions, safety and hygiene
practices remain in effect. All patients, guests and staff are expected to wear a mask at all times while in the office. No visitors to the office except during prenatal exams. All patients and guests are screened for their temperature before entering the office. Nobody with a fever or other symptoms of possible COVID will be allowed to enter the office.

Thank you for you understanding and cooperation.
FOWH Resumes Pap Smear Testing
Cancer screening with a pap smear is an important preventive measure and hundred of our patients have been delayed from having this important medical test.

Not long ago, the California Governor announced that cancer-screenings and some elective surgeries and procedures can resume. Our local mammogram center has resumed performing routine screening mammograms for breast cancer. Our hospital is resuming surgeries and procedures that had been cancelled including colonoscopies. It is time for us to resume screening women for cervical cancer, effective May 18, 2020.

To help keep down the number of people in our waiting room, we have a new procedure using text messaging to communicate to you when we are ready for you to check-in for your appointment. Click here to read about our new Text Messaging Appointment Notification process.
Testing for COVID-19
If someone tells you they had a test for coronavirus and it came back negative, what does this actually mean? You really need to know the answer to this question !

There are 2 kinds of tests for coronavirus. One is to detect if someone has the virus. The other is to detect if someone has developed antibodies to the virus. These are not the same thing. Read More...

Where can I get a COVID-19 test?
Testing is available at dozens of locations in Los Angeles County, at Huntington Hospital and at Exer Urgent Care Centers. Click here for details.
